Dean McDermott Tweets Dirt Bike Accident Details

It looks as though reality star Dean McDermott, 43, is in good spirits, despite the dirt bike accident which landed him in the intensive care unit with a punctured and collapsed lung on Tuesday (June 29).

The father-of-three took to Twitter to let his fans know he was on the road to recovery: “Thanks for all the well wishes. I think I will be out of the ICU tomorrow. It’s a slow recovery, but I am well on my way.”

He also took a moment to explain his unfortunate crash:

FYI- Tuesday I went out for a dirt bike ride with my friends, I ended smashing my chest into my bars as I went over the front of the bike. It was a freak accident. We still can’t figure out what happened. None the less, I have a collapsed lung and bad bruising on my right side. Oh, and 3 stitches in my right butt cheek where a stone got imbedded. Let’s just say, I won’t be dirt biking anymore.

Wife Tori Spelling, 37, will be happy to hear that his biking days are over as this was his second accident of the year.

“He’s taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life,” she told PEOPLE on Thursday (July 1).

Dean and Tori have two children together – Liam, 3, and Stella, 2. Dean also has an 11-year-old son Jack with ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.

    They don’t allow cell phones in the ICU, so if he was in intensive care and so much pain, he would not be on twitter!!! Again, this is another pathetic media attention grab for these two fame wh**s!!!

      Good point! These two drive me crazy. Proud to say I have not watched a second of their stupid show. The last thing I would be doing in ICU is wanting to post on Twitter.
